"washington journal" is next. host: >> host: the white house is to eating -- is disputing claims. the u.s. ambassador to madrid will appear to discuss buying in the country after press reports that the nsa collected information on phone calls. chiefs from those and other countries are expected to travel to the u.s. to discuss those issues. this topic, even on the sunday talk shows yesterday. for our first 45 minutes, when it comes to physically monitoring by the nsa on our allies, we want to get your thoughts on whether the u.s. should rethink spying on allies. here's how you can tell us this morning. you can also reach out to us on social media. you can always send us an e-mail to journal at c-span.org. stores today and yesterday stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknow

on the house position in terms of the resolution they passed back in the spring which had no tax increases, no revenue increases, assumed to the repeal of the affordable care act. it is the antithesis to the senate position. thesenate budge was resolution they passed. they had increased references -- revenues and a differences are so great it is unlikely there will be any kind of agreement to raise revenues because it could not pass in the house of representatives. host: does that doom this effort to failure? guest: now, if people had expectations that this would be a large deficit reduction package achieved by the hope for a deadline of december 13, i think that is off the table. i think there is a real possibility, not of a grand bargain, but of a bargain that will be granted that we got a bargain at all. the american public believes that congress is dysfunctional and cannot achieve anything. at a minimum, it seems there is a good possibility that both mrs. murray and mr. ryan can come together on some sort of package that will show that the house and senate can work together in a minima
subsidizes health care for people under 65 is through a tax provision, where if your employer pays your cash, you pay taxes on it and if he pays in health insurance, you don't pay tax. this reduces revenue by $300 billion a year. if it were a government program, it would be one of the largest within the federal government. the way the subsidy is structured, the higher the tax rate, the more it is worth. ted cruz, his wife is a highly paid investment banker, they get their insurance through a cadillac plan at goldman sachs and it cost $40,000 a year in 2009. to get a sense, family health insurance would cost 15,000 or 16,000, well more than twice as expensive as normal. the tax benefit is worth about $15,000. now the cost to insure a family of four on medicaid at that time was about $11,000. so that it's not that their health plan cost more than medicaid but the part subsidized by taxpayers cost more than the entirety of medicare coverage. what the affordable care act does is shift around the subsidies, it takes the money and puts it to people who need it either because they have low incomes
